The Good Life
by Thirsty Merc

The intro, verses and choruses are all the same sequence, only the bridge breaks trope.
The overall feel and structure falls somewhere between the rock anthem greats
"To Be With You" by Mr. Big, and "Life is a Highway" by Tom Cochrane.

It might be easier to play this on Capo 3 and drop it three semitones in UG tools, but open is always better.

[Intro]
Eb    Gm    Ab    Eb
Bb    Cm    Ab    N.C.
How you doin'?


[Verse 1]
Eb                   Gm
Some of us spend all our time
Ab                Eb
Chasing dreams of dollar signs
    Bb                   Cm
But I've got riches of a different kind
Ab                    Eb
Love is my fortune
Eb                              Gm
'cause all the bucks don't make no sense
Ab                      Eb
They don't bring you happiness
Bb                   Cm
Love's a picture so immense
     Ab                   Eb
It's bigger than Ben Hur


[Chorus]
       Eb              Gm
I'm no billionaire, No VIP
   Ab             Eb
No diamonds on my shoes
        Bb                      Cm
But I'm livin', living the good life
Ab                 Eb
Livin', living the good life
      Eb           Gm
I got everything I ever need
   Ab            Eb
As long as I got you
         Bb                      Cm
We'll be livin', living the good life
Ab                 Eb
Livin', living the good life
     Eb Gm       Ab    Eb   
Naw, na na na na na na na
      Bb                      Cm
We're livin', living the good life
Ab                 Eb
Livin', living the good life


[Verse 2]
    Eb                  Gm
One look at you and all is sweet
      Ab                  Eb
We've got the sky and the summer heat
     Bb                    Cm
Just like the sand beneath my feet
   Ab              Eb
It all might kinda go
    Eb                        Gm
And life's no game of scratch and win
      Ab                      Eb
But I struck it rich when you walked in
        Bb                      Cm
I don't own a yacht, but I like to swim
       Ab             Eb
On the isle of rock n roll


[Chorus]
       Eb              Gm
I'm no billionaire, No VIP
   Ab             Eb
No diamonds on my shoes
        Bb                      Cm
But I'm livin', living the good life
Ab                 Eb
Livin', living the good life
      Eb           Gm
I got everything I ever need
   Ab            Eb
As long as I got you
         Bb                      Cm
We'll be livin', living the good life
Ab                 Eb
Livin', living the good life
     Eb Gm       Ab    Eb   
Naw, na na na na na na na
      Bb                      Cm
We're livin', living the good life
Ab                 Eb
Livin', living the good life


[Chorus tag]
     Eb Gm       Ab    Eb   
Naw, na na na na na na na
      Bb                      Cm
We're livin', living the good life
Ab                 Eb
Livin', living the good life


[Bridge]
       Ab                  Cm
Take a rocket and get some space, man
      Eb                      F
Give away whatever weighs you down
     Ab
Just walk the human race, man
              Ab7
You're racing now


[Interlude]
Eb    Gm    Ab    Eb
Bb    Cm    Ab    N/C
Yeah, alright.


[Chorus]
       Eb              Gm
I'm no billionaire, No VIP
   Ab             Eb
No diamonds on my shoes
        Bb                      Cm
But I'm livin', living the good life
Ab                 Eb
Livin', living the good life
      Eb  snap  N.C.
I got everything I ever need

As long as I got you

great job on the tab dude, but it is a lot easier to play if you put capo on the first fret and play "D F#m G D, A Bm G D"
well timed chord changes though
